LONDON -- Kings goalie and Stanley Cup MVP Jonathan Quick had a "minor surgical procedure" on Thursday, repairing a disc fragment and an inflammatory cyst, according to the team. Quick, who helped lead the Kings to their first Stanley Cup in franchise history this past season, will start his back rehabilitation activities in about a week, and the team said that a full recovery should take a minimum of six weeks. That time frame puts it at late September, which would seemingly coincide with the start of training camp.

The regular season will end Sunday, and so will the voting period for the NHL's individual trophies. Colorado Coach Patrick Roy is too brash to win any popularity contests, but he deserves to win the Jack Adams Award as coach of the year, an honor voted on by NHL broadcasters. And although Sidney Crosby still has detractors, the Pittsburgh Penguins center is the front-runner for the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player, as chosen by members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Assn.

SAN JOSE -- Kings Coach Darryl Sutter started off his morning session with reporters here by saying he was thinking more about next week's events than Saturday's regular-season finale. Then he proved it. Sutter, cagily, found a way to issue a motivational (playoff) challenge for his No. 1 goalie Jonathan Quick, who has received a ton of recent and well-deserved notice as a potential Vezina Trophy winner with 35 victories and a goals-against average of 1.93. It started with discussion about Quick's rare minor penalty, for interference late in the second period with the Kings leading 3-1, causing a massive momentum swing when the Sharks scored on the ensuing power play.

Los Angeles Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: + Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick is on the verge of winning the Jennings Trophy, which goes to "the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against. " The oddity is that Quick has played only 47 games. Ben Scrivens played 19 before the Kings traded him to Edmonton, and Martin Jones has played 18. It's a significant award and would be a first for the Kings.

Some, but not all, of the signs pointed toward Kings goalie Jonathan Quick making his first start since injuring his groin on Nov. 12 against the Buffalo Sabres. Tangible: Quick left the ice at Saturday's morning skate at about the same time as rookie goalie Martin Jones. And Quick appeared to come through the brief session unscathed. If Quick is activated for Saturday night's game against Vancouver at Staples Center, then it appears Jones would go back to Manchester (N.H.) of the American Hockey League.

Bad things happen to us all. It's how you respond to the calamity that defines you. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick has found himself staring into the abyss of despair in this early NHL season. And each time, the goalie who led his team to the 2012 Stanley Cup and a trip to last season's Western Conference finals answered with what Kings goaltending coach Bill Ranford calls a "five-star performance. " On Oct. 7, a game after being pulled in the third period of a 5-3 loss at Winnipeg for allowing a third-period wraparound goal to Jets right wing Devin Setoguchi, Quick was doing his best to keep the Kings in a game they were otherwise getting beaten down in against the New York Rangers.

Kings Coach Darryl Sutter and goalie Jonathan Quick had plenty of interesting things to say during their news conference following L.A.'s 6-1 Stanley Cup-clinching victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night. Such as ... wait a minute, did that photographer just get whacked in the head with a Kings flag? That's hilarious! OK, sorry, what was I talking about again? Oh yeah, the news conference featuring the most valuable player of the postseason ... wait, who is that little chatterbox running, skipping and jumping all over the place?

San Jose Sharks Coach Todd McLellan sounded less than gracious Thursday when asked about the performance of Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick in the Sharks' 3-0 loss at Staples Center. Quick stopped 24 shots as the Kings took a 3-2 edge in the teams' Western Conference semifinal. He leads all playoff goaltenders with a 1.50 goals-against average, .948 save percentage and three shutouts. But McLellan didn't seem impressed by Quick's work. “I didn't think we tested him a lot tonight," McLellan said.

TORONTO, Canada - The groin injury suffered by Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick has not ruined his chances of being chosen for the U.S. men's Olympic team for the Sochi Games, Team USA General Manager David Poile said Thursday. Poile and other USA Hockey executives reaffirmed during a conference call that the U.S. men's and women's teams will be announced on Jan. 1 during the national telecast of the Winter Classic game between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs. The women's team will be announced during the second intermission and the men's team will be announced after the game.

Kings Coach Terry Murray will change his lines but not his goaltender for Sunday's win-or-vacation playoff game against Vancouver at Staples Center, calling Jonathan Quick "our guy" despite two shaky performances in teamwide breakdowns the Canucks have exploited to take a 3-2 series lead. Quick, overworked during the season and off his game since the Olympics, gave up five goals on 26 shots in two stints during the Kings' 7-2 loss Friday at Vancouver. The blame wasn't his alone, but he didn't make any momentum-changing stops then or in Game 4, when the Kings squandered three one-goal leads in a 6-4 loss.

VANCOUVER, Canada - This had the feel of a nicely paced scrimmage between the Kings and the Canucks with not much on the line. Then came the third period and an intense hockey game suddenly erupted on Saturday night at Rogers Arena. Kings defenseman Matt Greene got hit with a puck and his skate was soon bloodied. He left the game, came back to play and watched his team lose it with 1:23 remaining as Brad Richardson, the former King, gave the Canucks a 2-1 win and helped Vancouver avoid official playoff elimination.

There were no loud celebrations in the Kings' locker room at Staples Center on Wednesday, no high-fiving or back-patting or any other hint players appreciated the significance of their 4-0 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes. And that's as it should be for the Kings, who elevated their expectations by winning the Stanley Cup in 2012 and reaching the Western Conference finals last season with a bruised and battered team. Their seventh win in eight games and 15th in their last 19 assured them of the third spot in the Pacific Division and a first-round playoff matchup against the No. 2 team in the division -- likely the San Jose Sharks -- but it didn't set off any partying.

It was all going so well until the brother-in-law got involved. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick was picking up right where he left off the other day, looking sharp, poised and on his game, even if all of his teammates weren't quite along for the ride Monday at Staples Center. Then Minnesota forward Matt Moulson, who is Quick's brother-in-law and a former teammate, got opportunistic and sparked a third-period rally by the Wild as Minnesota beat the Kings, 3-2, scoring twice in a span of 1 minute 2 seconds.

Upon further review . . . Teammates were more than impressed with Kings goalie Jonathan Quick's incredible kick save on Blake Wheeler with just under a minute remaining in their 4-2 win over Winnipeg on Saturday night. Quick was on his stomach and kicked his right leg back to make the save on Wheeler, who was shooting from a sharp angle from the right corner. The view on the ice was one thing. But it looked even better when the Kings were finally able to watch the replays afterward.

Their hard-earned road mentality survived the flight home intact, making the trip back to Staples Center with the Kings. That hasn't always been the case this season. But the Kings chased one goalie (Ondrej Pavelec) and scored once on his replacement (Al Montoya) to defeat the Winnipeg Jets, 4-2, on Saturday night for their sixth straight victory. Leading scorer Anze Kopitar scored twice for the Kings, his 23rd and 24th goals of the season, his linemate Marian Gaborik added two assists, as did defenseman Willie Mitchell for his first multi-point game in nearly two years.

PITTSBURGH - When the Kings wrap up their three-game, four-day trip Thursday against Pittsburgh, they'll also finish the non-conference portion of their schedule. They might not want it to end because they've had such success against the East this season, at 20-8-3. Among West teams, only San Jose (21-7-4) and St. Louis (21-5-2) have more wins against the East. But playing exclusively within the West means less travel, and that's always welcome. After Thursday, the Kings will have eight games remaining, four against teams currently holding playoff spots and four against non-playoff teams.

Many teams do similar good deeds. Bad guys make headlines but there are good people in the sports world.

PHILADELPHIA - If Flyers fans booed every time Jeff Carter touched the puck Monday, it must have sounded like music to his ears. With extra zip in his step if not revenge in his heart for the acrimonious end to his tenure with the Flyers, Carter scored the Kings' first goal in his first game back at the Wells Fargo Center. Another former Flyer longer removed, Justin Williams, scored the second goal of the Kings' eventual 3-2 victory. "There's an added incentive any time you play your former team, especially the way things ended here," Williams said of Carter, who didn't speak to the media after the game.
